Irving Penn and Issey Miyake

For over a decade, fashion designer Issey Miyake and photographer Irving Penn, collaborated to create posters of the designer's work, and an exhibition of these posters is showing at the beautifully modern 21_21 Design Site gallery in Tokyo's Midtown. Yesterday I went along to check it out. The main piece in the exhibition consists of an ultra-high definition projector, which projects changing images of Irving Penn's photos in gigantic scale onto the wall. The effect is amazingly dramatic, with the combination of stunning, sculptural clothes and vivid photography.
